      Comments about Acepromazine:

      We've used Acepromazine on my dog before. Obtained from my vet, in red pills. Same dosage ( 2 x 25mg). We usually see the effects within 2 hours, and we can really tell when it hits him. We actually needed him even more submissive and out of it go this last go around so we gave him (3 x 25mg) which is a LOT. For whatever reason, this brand of acepromazine had absolutely no affect on him. Tried again a couple days later with no success. Gave it to him in the morning, just to make sure we could see if it had any affect throughout the day. He was *a little* tired, but no where near as effective as the two red acepromazine pills we've given him from the vet. Extremely disappointed, wish I could get my money back.

      Comments about Acepromazine:

      use for storms we have lots of them here in FL, and if I'm going to be gone longer then a couple hours I give him a 1/2 just to take edge off and he knows it works when he feels a storm coming he goes to the cabinet where it's kept and barks, so my dog "Duke" know when he needs it too... best medication out there.
